It is ridiculous how obsessed we are with nudity. My art teacher, in high school, had to warn and flag history of art books because of nudity!!!(talk about politically correct--sigh!) I'm a huge fan of appreciating the human form. I think a tasteful nude in a public place is fine. Keep the more sexual (nudity- doesn't necessarily mean sexual) to your room or private areas if it would make you worried about guest's reactions.
Going Nude at Home

I primarily love the MCM aesthetic because the house we will be moving into is from the 1950s and is very pokey and narrow. I find the spindley legs help the furniture not look too heavy. It's also minimalistic (no clutter) and quite low profiled. Chunky furniture like black leather sofas and large chunky dressers just make it look smaller. I definitely keep a lookout for this stuff in the local used pages- but often it is out of my budget- I don't necessarily mind lesser made contemporary versions. I just finished university- and we need furniture- and most other stuff wouldn't fit! Might as well go with what works!

Ewwww. I'm in my twenties, and I remember thinking it was ugly even in the 90s growing up. I really like cool colours, so that's probably why I don't like golds... It just seems over the top and kinda ostentatious...

I like Grey Owl. It has a cool modern vibe to it.
